♠️ Now that the dust has settled, it is time to address some unfinished business! ♠️

With 1,760 first run teams, paying out $168,111 to 203 competitors from 18 states and 3 Canadian provinces, by all accounts, this show was a massive success! We could not have pulled off a show of this magnitude without a first rate team including:

♠️ Brandt Clark, our talented announcer
♠️ Emily Kennedy, our kind and patient show secretary
♠️ Our unbelievable cattle crew: Natalie Peters Hieronimus, Glenn Hieronimus, Steve Schemmel, Eli Pieper, Loren Vander Beek, & Bryan Runge
♠️ Our keen judges: Shana M. Lipsey Lubahn, Mark Andraschco, & Monica Ensminger.
♠️ Our friends, family, and volunteers including, but not limited to: Tim & Stacy Sivertson, Erin Richter, Wes Freiheit, Michelle Freiheit, Steve Freiheit, Amy Freiheit, Rich Cooke, Geri Cooke, Morgan Vander Beek, Karson Pinky Duncanson, Jason Clinton, Dustin Bluhm, Joe & Mindy Skibinski, Justin Kunze, Sadie Kunze, Kimberley Ann von Knobelsdorff-Brenkenhoff, Logan Wolfe, Joel Lesh, Brian Anderson, Jessica Anderson, Gage Anderson, Bodee Kruger

♠️ Tough Luck Award Winners ♠️

Travis Holck
Isaiah Olson

With huge classes, talented riders, and fresh cattle, competition was tough. Instead of high point awards, we decided to give a second chance to those who rode well and ALMOST got there. Names of all those who finished one hole out of the money were entered into a drawing. Two lucky winners were awarded a big screen tv to recognize their efforts.
